Conservative is not accurate. Radical right is closer to where he was. He also believed in keep them angry, keep them afraid and they will make you money.

The fact that this vile person had an audience is a sad statement on America. That fact that our equally vile potus gave him the Medal of Freedom, cheapens that honor.

I'm sure he will be shown empathy in his after life as much as he did while living.

Rush Limbaugh had an "AIDS Update" segment that mocked the deaths of gay people.

Limbaugh on the death of Jerry Garcia: “Just another dead doper”—while Rush is gobbling down his illegally obtained opioids. The hypocrisy of that man and his followers is breathtaking. Yes, we are “piling on.” Rush has reaped what he has sown.

When we die, we must experience everything we have done to others.
Good and bad.
Joy, pain, suffering, compassion.
Only, we are forced to experience everything from their perspectives.
We see what they saw. We hear what they heard. We feel what they felt.
Imagine killing someone. When you die, would you want to experience their death, from their perspective? You experience everything they thought and felt up until they breathed their last death. You experience the complete result of your actions toward them . . . but from the victims perspective. And the victim keeps looking into your eyes.

Too bad we could not create a device that would allow criminals to experience that.

Rush Limbaugh, I cannot imagine what you experienced a few moments after you died.
And I hope I will never have to live through such a mind and soul wrenching nightmare.

I suggest the movie . . . "Powder".

Ohmygoodness. I heard that he was saying they he didn't expect to survive this much (or something like that) on the radio last year. I heard him talking almost choking prior to that but his talk sounded like he recovered last year. I kind of presumed that the election could affect people. WTH

“You can do anything the left will promote and understand and tolerate as long as there is one thing. Do you know what it is? Consent. If there is consent in all who involved in the sex act it’s perfect fine, but if the left ever senses that there’s no consent in the equation? Then here come the r*pe police” - Rush Limbaugh.
May he rest in PISS

Hahaha. This is like your obituary on Kobe Bryant pointing out all of the "controversial" things right after he died. It's hilarious that this is all you could find after 30 years, 3 hours a day on the air. Your bias towards outrage is so obvious it's laughable.

“That’s what Rush Limbaugh really brings to the airwaves. A 3 hour talk radio program, in which it’s basically him talking into a microphone.”
You mean, A TALK RADIO PROGRAM?

4:24 this was all an act. Rush knew he was getting the PMOF. That look of surprise was deliberately faked. All ready sitting next to the First Lady in preparation for receiving it. Give him an Oscar posthumously, too.
